I have a fairly light guitar and when I move my hand up the fret board when strumming, the guitar neck sort of moves backwards. It's really annoying.

Is there anything I can do to keep the neck steady as I strum up and down the fret board?

This should probably go in the technique section. But it sounds like you are grabbing the neck too tightly.

You mean the whole guitar moves? If the neck moves independently from the body then you've got to bring it to a tech.

If the whole guitar moves, stop moving it.

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.

Even if play so light that the cord doesn't sound properly it still moves.

The whole guitar moves.

If the guitar is 'moving backwards' then it's kind of obvious what the problem is.

Stop moving the guitar.

If you have never played standing up before you just need practising. The difference between sitting down and standing up is that the guitar hangs freely where when sitting its locked in place. You will get used to it eventually.
